The PlayStation Store is home to a large selection of pretty much every type of game you can imagine. Journey recently launched on the PSN, and thatgamecompany has announced it is the fastest-selling game ever on the PSN. Journey, like thatgamecompany's Flow and Flower before it, is not so much a game as it is an experience. Brilliant visuals help to pull you into the adventure as your character walks across the desert towards a mountain. You can play with another person, but there is no communication other than chirping. You do not even see the name of your compatriot until the game ends, which is a decidedly different approach to multiplayer. Exact sales numbers for Journey are not available, but thatgamecompany seems quite happy with the results. The soundtrack will arrive on the PSN and iTunes on April 10th, plus a "limited" number of CDs will also be available.
However, thatgamecompany's president and co-founder Kellee Santiago has reportedly left the company, as have other "key" staffers. The studio is hiring for an online game capable of supporting thousands of users at once, so we will just have to see what effect the departure(s) have on development.
